7:01 am
international news and common life from moscow this is the with me your leadership of our thanks for joining us. mosco and damascus san diego say seeing the terms of a hand over of syria's chemical weapons to the international community the move follows russia's proposal for the assad government to relinquish its toxic also in order to avoid being attacked by the us meanwhile the top french diplomat says paris forced a mask is to make its stockpiles public and will be taking the case to the u.n. the u.s. war machine will however continue to loom over syria but washington would overwhelmingly prefer not to pull the trigger but according to barack obama his bunch russia's latest initiative the u.s. congress and the american public remain largely opposed to starting another conflict chicken has more now. this may be a face saving moment for the obama administration because it's org humans for
7:02 am
a military action against syria have been falling apart both in the international community and in the u.s. congress congress jumped on this russian proposal because they're being bombarded every day by their constituents who demand that they vote no to strikes against syria within hours after syria confirmed its willingness to get rid of chemical weapons the senate delayed the ball down strikes that were scheduled for later this week the president knowing that the house of representatives would most likely vote no on attacking syria was very vague about the prospect of the vote he said that i don't anticipate that you you would see a succession of votes this week or. any time. in the immediate future and so i think there will be time during the course of the debates here in the united states for the international community the russians and the syrians to work with us to see is there a way to resolve this the obama administration's rhetoric has been confusing and
7:03 am
has raised lots of questions it is as it was building the case for strikes the u.s. wanted the support of the you when but would refuse to take classified evidence that washington supposedly has against the syrian leader to. the u.n. security council also two u.s. lawmakers secretary of state john kerry would make arguments like if congress does not support strikes in syria u.s. allies saudi arabia and carter according to john kerry who would certainly fund the more extremist elements of the syrian opposition of course many ask what kind of an argument is that why are they even your allies if you admit that they're willing to fund terrorists we're almost used to this one day president obama says he has made his final decision on strikes the next day he says he has not made his final decision at a time when he has confused virtually everybody in the international community and among the american people and nobody knows where he's standing right now the president is still expected to try and sell the strikes against syria to the american people in his tuesday night address meanwhile the whole neo cons in
7:04 am
washington are making a last ditch attempt to convince obama to bomb syria that's the view of journalist central constant new clark. the u.s. position on syria is very incoherent isn't it because we're having different things said it in different times today or yesterday we had john kerry saying that if syria gave up its chemical weapons that could stop the war and then they would do that and then there was a sort of backtracking saying it was a rhetorical argument now we're hearing from president obama that it would make a difference and that plans could be put on hold of course the washington elite is very divided that's why there is this incoherence because you've got on one hand the more cautious elements in washington of the two are really worried about the consequences of attacking syria and on the other hand you've got these fanatical crazed neo con hawks who are desperate at all costs whatever the cost even of risking world war three to provoke war with syria so a barber you know one one minute he sort of siding with the hawks the other minute he's siding with a more cautious voices and that and i think the incoherence stems from the fact
7:05 am
that the elites are divided in washington as to what to do next really it's been a slow global awakening as to the neocon agenda people have woken up after war after war after war people across the world are finally saying no no more war and the elites in washington got this problem they would love to bring about regime change in damascus they really want that the only thing that could have been that about is war but the public are seventy eighty percent against war so they've got this big problem now the elites across the western world really barack obama is hard pressed to avoid repeating the mistakes of his predecessor who at times iraq without u.n. approval and under what terms out to be a false pretext that's according to one of the architects of russian foreign policy and it's a push call. there is if not panic definitely tension in washington concerning this decision statements that promote acting on them are followed by new statements the u.s. seems to be having major trouble figuring out the policies that will be accepted by the international community america's own allies and global public opinion as well
7:06 am
as that inside the us obama has found himself in a very difficult situation he is desperately trying to not become a copycat of his predecessor george w. bush he campaigned on promises to be bush's opposite and now he's walking down the very same road bush attacked iraq with the u.n. sanctions and obama isn't likely to get them and he is deeply troubled by that because he campaigned that he would be a president of peace that's why he's desperate to get any legitimization for his actions while while powers that time to happen rhetoric a number of sources told us here that rebel forces are planning to launch a provocation he using chemical weapons against israel point us here isn't our. i've spoken to both the israeli foreign ministry is what is the army spokes persons
7:07 am
units and i was asking them for they reaction to the reports we have that there is an imminent threat being planned by syrian rebels originating in territory in syria that is controlled by the syrian government against israel now the reaction was to quote one of the spokespeople for off aged the other response was simply a refusal to comment as of yet no reaction in the israeli press it's difficult to say whether or not we expect such a reaction because very often this country is reluctant to comment publicly certainly the officials don't want to go on record giving any kind of statements of what is happening inside syria but the information we are getting and this is from sources that are close to what is happening on the ground in syria is that as i say this attack would originate in a sad hole controlled territory but it will be carried out by the rebels the result of this is that the blame will be for me put on the shoulders of the assad regime now at the same time the important point to make is that there has been a report that has just been released by the leading israeli counterterrorist think
7:08 am
tank and this report does talk about the possibility of unconventional weapons forming into the hands of terrorist groups inside syria israelis are concerned that chemical stockpiles move forward into quote the wrong hands and the need for israelis this really is the hands of hezbollah and although israeli officials have not in the posco on the record at this it's widely understood that israel has carried out at least four strikes inside syria at weapon delivery supplies to be his militants and to be his organization of course israel would rather prefer a side stay in power there's no love lost between the two countries but it's almost like that old saying back to the devil you know the devil you don't know from the israeli side i want to also bring you attention to the information we're receiving from a belgian researcher who was recently released after having being held. took by syrian rebels inside that country and he was held by them for five months and he has say
7:09 am
that he denies that the syrian president was responsible for this new toys and gas attack that took place on a village near damascus in which more than a thousand civilians went to gas today. dominica and i have a moral duty to say that it's not the bash al assad government that you sorry nor any of the gas in the damascus suburb of ghouta we're certain of that after a conversation we had the hood even though it cost me to say he said because i've supported the free syrian army passionately and it's fair fight for democracy. now in this folder national says it has this information because he overheard a conversation between his captors in which they said as much and that is that they were responsible for this attack but of course we'll stay on top of the situation waiting to see if there's any kind of his radio official reaction to these reports of a potential whipple's strike against this country. and with america firmly putting
7:10 am
the blame for any use of weapons of mass destruction on the syrian regime the u.s. national security adviser susan rice has also warned of a direct chemical threat to israel by terrorizing civilians creating even greater refugee flows and raising the risk the deadly chemicals would spill across borders into neighboring turkey jordan lebanon and iraq and obviously the use of chemical weapons also directly threatens our closest ally in the region israel where people once again have readied gas masks. every time chemical weapons are moved unloaded and used on the battlefield it raises the likelihood that these weapons will fall into the hands of terrorists active in syria including assad's ally hezbollah and al qaeda affiliates
7:11 am
and defense consultants and knowing ra you've told my colleague kevin owen the reports of israel potentially being targeted by syrian rebels come as no surprise remember the rebels have stated previously from the beginning of this year that they're going to attack israel this been a stated goal from the beginning anyway and once they had to achieve their objectives in syria they would have gone on to israel anyway. some by un observers in the golan heights earlier this year but israel underestimated the threat he thinks of. oh yeah oh yeah because israel thought so that once assad leaves is going to be peace in the region they had underestimated the rebels goal which was to start with syria and then go on to israel and other countries in the region. this is coming up later spanned norm spending less

but with economic stagnation continuing on the continent it remains to be seen what will happen to these political groups who seek. moscow while undergoing tough it can all the challenges they were to the government has made attempts to count calls by constant jobs but it spent here huge amounts of money doing so millions of pounds of pay to independent consultants to oversee the process puts a huge waste of money in this particular time when one is looking to point savings we can't continue on with a culture of prophecy and forgetting who is actually picking up the bill says thomas perez who picking up the bill taxpayers who may be having to balance their own budgets and look at what they can afford. so data from the cabinets office shows in the year twenty twelve twenty thirteen the seventeen main departments spent five hundred six million pounds on consultants to help with special projects such as i t accountancy and finance another three hundred twenty eight million pounds one
